Possible Luol Deng Trade
The Los Angeles Lakers are showing some promise with their young roster and 7-10 record. With such a young roster, it has left veteran Luol Deng on the outside looking in. He has played in only one game this season and is averaging only two points and one assist per game.
ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne reported that Luol Deng's representatives have spoken with the Lakers in the hopes of landing him a buyout or trade. Deng still has two years of his contract remaining and it is unlikely that a team will want to trade for him at $18 million per year.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
